I admit it: I'm a total geek. I love electronics, programming, 3D art, vintage Apple hardware, and whisky. I'm always juggling half a dozen projects. I also enjoy documenting it all: my successes, my failures, my experiences... and everything geeky along the way.

You Gonna Stop Me?

I was so happy with the way that my last sci-fi render came out, I figured that I do another one. I just love the way that the lighting came out.


I basically just recycled the same scene; keeping the lights exactly the same. I just made a few changes to Victoria. I added more Bot Armor and changed the hair and makeup.

I posed the camera, altered the depth-of field, and let it render.

I let it render for a long time. I was actually away for the weekend, so I figured there was no harm in just letting it run while I was away. Needless to say, it ran for 60 hours. You should see what it looks like at the full 2560 x 1440 resolution. It’s amazing.

Even with all that light work, I still tweaked the color in post. I just felt this one needed a purple glow.

I added some light flares and a zoom effect….

…and topped it off with some bokeh.

Not bad. It looks awesome on my desktop.
